I recently bought a magnetic exercise bike to try and get extra training in around the family (normally do mountain biking using android app and mapmyride.com).
I am a bit confused as to how I can accurately log the workouts. The bike has various programs on it, which all work well. My issue is that whether you have it set to the easiest level or hardest it doesn't change the distance covered. Let me explain.
I can set it to manual for 5 minutes, at the easiest level. I would pedal at 90rpm steadily, it would give me the watts generated (around 25 I believe from memory). It would tell me I have gone 2.2KM (for instance).
I can then do the same but at a much harder level, i.e. 90rpm for 5 minutes. It would tell me I am doing round 90-100 watts around 4x as much, but the distance would be the same.
I am not sure how to record these training sessions so I can track my progress accurately.
